Sky is the limit
Heterogenous, abundant and firmly alternative, Ciou’s world is a visual compendium of fantastic themes and styles. Her style is the result of a massive hybridation of European, American, Mexican and Japanese influences. She composed fluor coloured farandoles with attractive nymphs, phantasmagorical animals and anthropomorphic plants grow and intermingle.
The longer and more you look you discover new adventures, even more defined details in the miniature itself, fully precision craftmanship next level, extraordinary detailed, Ciou’s microcosm, magnefique big time….
As a pioneer of the contemporary pop-art and lowbrow-art movement, Ciou has evolved into a best-selling artist. Her hyper-focused pieces have found a broad palette of admirers like trailblazers Camille Rose Garcia and Paola Hivelin.
Ciou’s works have been shown in the Urban Nation museum in Berlin, Palais de Tokyo and La Halle St. Pierre in Paris and The Madre Museum of Contemporary Art in Napoli. It’s also part of the permanent collection of the Museé de la Poste in Paris.
“I am working 10 hours a day, almost everyday. I am doing research and sketches at The Museum of Natural History‘s library and work on several pieces at the same time."
"When I am not in my studio, I am traveling for shows.”
“The inner land for me is a new way to travel, inside dreams. It’s a way to see the world with fantasy, a bridge between two worlds.”
“I use acrylic, gouache and ink on different kinds of paper: vintage paper, regular paper, etc. As long as I can draw on it, it’s good.”
